    Well, no-one is compelled to reply; and even the PRs cannot lawfully reply unless:
    a. they are named as Executors (in T's Will); or
    b. they have obtained a Grant of Letters of Administration.

    But, once the Notice period has elapsed, you can apply to Court for possession.

        And my previous posts on this merged thread apply equally to post #86.

          AST Due end within one week and tenant has died

          Hoping someone can help, have read through many of the other topics in relation to death of a tenant but none of them cover when to lease is due to expire which is in less that a weeks time.

          My question is what happens, the tenant resided in the premises on his own however over the last few months he has given many friends and family a set of keys, I lease the whole of the premises and sublet the flat to him 5 years ago, i do not make any money on the premises as it was done purely to maintain the noise levels from the flat , he paid two weeks deposit and whilst i am sympathetic of what the family is going through as we had it earlier this year we also cannot afford not to have the property let. What happens next week when the lease has expired do we change the locks and who is responsible if friends who he gave the keys to take things from the premises. If the lease is expired would that mean if anyone decided to move in who has keys whilst no agreement is in place they would have squatters rights


          Obviously we want this to be amicable with the family as the tenant himself was a lovely person, however i want to give them time to deal with it but also need to know what rights we have.
